Author Helen McCarthy interviewed and Hayao Miyazaki reviewed in Neo Magazine
Neo Magazine, Issue 010, September 2005 about Hayao Miyazaki -- Master of Japanese Animation: "It's easy to be sceptical and wonder what this book could possibly offer anyone who had ready access to the Internet and a couple of hours to spare. Sure enough, stills, plot information and Miyazaki shrines are all out there, but they don't offer anywhere near the kind of depth of discussion that McCarthy presents us with. Sales figures, quotes, anecdotes and statistics all provide a comprehensive and occasionally surprising glimpse at the genius behind the magic you see on the movie screen. If you thought you could not discover something new about Miyazaki that you don't already know, you're either wrong, or you've already read this book."
